What materials do you use?

We print on paper and canvas. our paper is 100% cotton Hahnemuehle Fine Art paper and our canvas is 100% cotton quality artist canvas. We print using a fine art printing process called "Gicleé". The inks used are 170 year archival inks that resist UV fading. In addition our canvases are treated with a scratch and UV resistant coating to ensure that you will enjoy your artwork for generations. The quality of the materials we use make your artwork an heirloom piece. Our paper prints arrived at your door rolled in a tube and ready for framing. Most of our sizes are ready made frame compatible. Our canvas prints come in two ways. The first is rolled in a tube and ready to frame. The second is stretched canvas stretched on hardwood stretcher bars. Stretched canvases come complete with hanging wires ready to hang on your wall. We recommend that you frame your paper or unstretched canvas prints with acid free materials.

What is gallery wrapping?

Gallery Wrapping is when the image wraps around the edges and stapled on the back. With gallery wrapping, framing is not necessary. Most people simply hang their canvas as is, but of course you can always still have it framed if you choose.
